Jimmie's 10 and Stella's 6

October 31st 2006, Jimmie woke up and asked if we were going to make cinnamon rolls for his birthday which is our family tradition.  Roy asked him if we could have them in the evening with his birthday buddy.  Estella Grace Zesch was born on Jimmie's 4th birthday and they have lots of fun sharing their birthday. 
Happy Birthday Stella!!!

She's 6

And, got new boots!!

This year Jimmie decided he wanted to go camping with his daddy on his Papa's ranch.  He wanted to ride, and hunt, and camp.  So, we don't have any pictures of Jimmie's day.  We know he is having fun! 

We love you Jimmie , Happy Birthday!!!!!!

Pumpkins and Peanuts

We carved pumpkins today;  Jimmie, Michael, and Matthew were a team and decided to  carve this cowboy.  Notice his gun in his left hand:)

And here he is decorated by Jimmie.

And, here is Joshua, Joy, and Stella's gourd eater; dedicated to Bobby Knight:)

All lit up.
The seeds are roasted, the pumpkin meat is steamed and seasoned; let the baking begin:)
And these are our home grown peanuts.  G'pa sent us some peanut seeds to plant this spring and one plant survived.  We had a good harvest off of one plant.  They were very tasty.  Very robust!!
